But negativity is a filter. When it’s before our eyes, we unconsciously filter out anything positive that we experience and only notice the negative.
A negative mind is a cage. We may feel comfortable in it, thinking we have figured out how life works and are protecting ourselves from disappointment. But the cage robs us from living the life we are capable of living, prevents us from even trying, or trying hard enough. It keeps us leading a life of quiet desperation.
Our filters get clogged up with all the negative messages around. They have to be cleansed regularly.This is how to do it:
- Seek out positive information each day, at the start of the day for 15 minutes. Read a book by a motivational or inspiring author; listen to an audio programme by motivational speaker or watch an inspiring video on Youtube. Notice how you start each day on a mission.
- Be mindful of the running commentary in your head when you experience things that make you feel negative. Be aware of it. Remember it is just the filter speaking, one you were imposed. It’s not really you. You were born positive. You have the ability to blast through the negative.
By following these 3 steps, we can reconnect with that fact and catch on to the fact that we have more control than we realise. A positive mind will naturally seek ways to have a positive, fulfilling life. A positive mindset can be cultivated. Follow the steps and see for yourself.Our mind is the helm of the ship. We are the captain.
